Astro PFP FR Putty seal is an easy to apply fire and sound rated sealant supplied as a non-setting putty. The putty is hand workable, reusable and re-serviceable due to its non-setting properties. The putty is manufactured and supplied in different shapes and forms for different applications.

Putty Pads for sockets

When electrical sockets and switches are installed in dry lining partitions, the original fire rating of the partition is compromised. Fitting Putty Pads will reinstate the fire rating of the partition for up to 90 minutes (depending on the partition fire rating) preventing the passage of smoke, flames, sound and air through the electrical socket.

Putty Cords for fire sealing services

The putty chord is designed to seal small gaps (0-10mm wide) around service penetrations where it is difficult to use traditional intumescent sealant and backers in terms of access and maintaining correct depths of seal.

Putty Pads for water supply boxes

When tap water wall boxes are installed in dry lining partitions, the original fire rating of the partition is compromised. Fitting Putty Pads will will reinstate the fire rating of the partition for up to 90 minutes (depending on the partition fire rating) preventing the passage of smoke, flames, sound and air through the electrical socket.

Installation 

We have technical representatives who provide assistance in the selection and specification of the products on this site and should be consulted for exact installation and product suitability. Ensure an early engagement with ourselves, designers, main contractor and specialist installers before any installation. Other trades and/or manufacturers may need to be consulted. 

Maintenance

All interested parties, designer, specifier, main contractor and specialist installers should provide access to allow the fire stopping seals to be regularly inspected and maintained, as well as records kept of such maintenance at minimum periods of 12 months, as required by the Regulatory Reform Order, and repaired if necessary. Reference should be made to ASFP TGD 17 – Code of Practice for the Installation and Inspection of Fire Stopping.

Competency

It is vital that those entrusted to design or install a fire stopping product have the necessary levels of competence to undertake the task professionally and thoroughly. The level of competency required will be commensurate with the expected complexity of the building. All designers must eliminate, reduce or control foreseeable risks that may arise during installation, construction or maintenance when preparing or modifying designs. Clients should ensure that the principal designer and principal contractor carry out their duties under CDM regulations. The ASFP foundation course in passive fire protection provides essential knowledge as part of demonstrating competency and understanding in this key fire protection specialism.
